“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” –Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution
Recently, I was invited on the Sons of Liberty Radio broadcast to discuss the Tenth Amendment and the authority of the States to nullify unconstitutional laws. The following is a summary of my comments. I have learned a great deal from our constitutional scholar Publius Huldah, for which I am grateful. Many of the things mentioned I have been taught through her writings.
The States are their own sovereign country, an ideology largely lost after the tyranny of Abraham Lincoln and the War of Northern Aggression (and if there are those out there that think I’m blowing smoke, I would encourage them to read Jefferson Davis’ Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government.) The states created the federal government, not the other way around and as such, it is the creature and the subordinate to the states.
THE FULLMOST MEASURE OF SOVEREIGNTY– By default, all candidates are ineligible, not eligible, to hold the office of President until they are proven otherwise. Natural-born citizens are those citizens born under what America’s founders commonly and mutually held as the natural laws of God which, thereby, afford the individual with natal citizenry protected under both the jurisdiction of the constitutional laws of the nation, and by birth to two citizen parents, without relinquishment of that status by expatriation, renunciation or foreign adoption.
